Italy: Dozens of Teachers Sick After Receiving Coronavirus Vaccine

Breitbart News

ROME — Dozens of Italian teachers called in sick Monday after getting inoculated with the AstraZeneca vaccine against the coronavirus over the weekend in Treviso, northern Italy, local media report.

Students in two area middle schools were sent home an hour earlier than usual due to insufficient teaching staff. At the Duca degli Abruzzi high school, 15 teachers out of 130 were absent, complaining of fever, malaise, and pain in the bones.

In a local primary school, San Domenico Savio, two out of three teachers called in sick with similar complaints of aggravated side effects from the vaccine that had left them incapacitated.

Now there is talk of some schools being forced to close for lack of teachers, the Tribuna di Treviso reports Monday, since “dozens and dozens” of local teachers find themselves unable to report for work.

The Italian daily Oggi Treviso reported on Sunday that 3,000 teachers had been inoculated on Saturday and another 2,500 were scheduled to receive the vaccine before the end of the weekend. All the teachers inoculated against the coronavirus were under 55 years of age and all received the AstraZeneca vaccine.

The vaccination campaign in Treviso is part of a nationwide program offering free coronavirus shots for Italy’s teachers between the ages of 18 and 55.

Late last week, the Duchess Elisabeth Hospital in Braunschweig, Germany, suspended its AstraZeneca vaccination program until further notice after 37 of its 88 vaccinated employees wound up confined to bed and unable to work because of side effects similar to those complained of in Treviso.

A Swedish region temporarily suspended vaccinations with the AstraZeneca vaccine in mid-February because more people than expected reported suffering from a fever after receiving the shot. Vaccinations with the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine were also halted at two locations in Lower Saxony after complaints from clinic employees about side effects.

A recent study found that while the Moderna and Pfizer/Biontech vaccines have an effectiveness of 94 and 95 percent respectively, the effectiveness of AstraZeneca is 76 percent after the first vaccination and up to 82 percent after the second. Other studies have determined its effectiveness at around 70 percent.

What happened to the flu?

Coronavirus: Australian winter influenza deaths fell to just two. By Stephen Lunn.

Just two people in Australia died from influenza between late April and November last year, and the overall number of recorded deaths across the country was significantly lower in 2020 than in ­recent years.

The fall was driven by fewer ­fatalities from respiratory diseases, including pneumonia and influenza, new Australian Bureau of Statistics data reveals, and comes despite almost 1000 Australians dying from COVID-19 in the same period.

What an interesting experiment!

Australia closed its border to the rest of the world, but scarcely locked down. Yes, Victoria (20% of the country) locked down for four months, and there were a few weeks of lockdown here and there, but for most of Australia most of the time there was no lockdown.

Conclusion: Flu deaths are driven by overseas travellers bringing new flu strains into Australia. The Australian population of 25 million is too small to sustain the flu. We reached sufficient herd immunity for the flu (with some help from the flu vaccine) to mostly die out here within a year.

So Australia could eliminate the flu locally by banning overseas travel. But even this biological gain comes at a cost. It would leave Australians vulnerable to newly developing flu strains overseas, to which we would have little or no immunity. When we did get infected, it would be much worse. It would be like when native Americans or Australian Aboriginals first came into contact with European and Asian diseases — it just wipes them out.

Btw, researchers reckon that measles only developed some 6,000 years ago. Before then the human population was too small to sustain such an infectious disease. A bigger population can sustain more infectious diseases, without the disease ever dying out. (To help see this, take it to its logical extreme. Consider a population consisting just of your family, biologically isolated from the rest of humanity. Once your family gets rid of a disease, it’s gone for good from your family.)

All of which rather points out how wrong the people repeating the Chinese propaganda were, that covid is “just a little flu” or “no worse than the flu”. Sure. Covid killed a thousand Australians while flu killed just two.

Cindy being kind and keeping the borders closed to protect her family of 5 million, might have had a unintended consequence.

One can be generous her and say we told you so.

  1. “A recent study found that while the Moderna and Pfizer/Biontech vaccines have an effectiveness of 94 and 95 percent respectively, the effectiveness of AstraZeneca is 76 percent after the first vaccination and up to 82 percent after the second.

    I call BS on these figures. Were they worked out with computer models?

    “All of which rather points out how wrong the people repeating the Chinese propaganda were, that covid is “just a little flu” or “no worse than the flu”. Sure. Covid killed a thousand Australians while flu killed just two.”

    I also think this conclusion is BS. What is the normal death rate per year in Aussie from flu and pneumonia? ( I have read and I do not know how true it is, but a new virus can often “suppress” existing viruses for a short period of time and that may explain the drop in flu deaths, if the figure is correct, for the past year.)

  2. Mask madness:
    From Martin Geddes’ Telegram channel:

    A report by the Belgian Institute for public health has discovered MILLIONS of fabric Covid-19 face masks, handed out for free by the Belgian government – may contain TOXIC PARTICLES.

    When inhaled the silver and titanium oxide particles could cause ‘respiratory problems and even CANCER in the long term’, according to a Belgian toxicologist expert.

    The Belgian Health Minister told local media that ‘no health risk has been determined at present’, but based on the findings the government has decided to stop using and distributing the masks.

  3. Elderly population suddenly dying off for unexplained reasons, and it’s no longer coded as covid-19

    In 2020, medical examiners would have easily labeled these sudden deaths as covid-19, but now these deaths are somehow unexplained, with no definitive cause. Before the covid-19 vaccines were unleashed, seniors died of covid-19. Now seniors are dying of natural causes again, right after being vaccinated. It won’t be long before a surge in elderly deaths around the world is blamed on a new variant of SARS-CoV-2, with medical authorities calling for new vaccines, more doses, and mRNA updates. Isn’t it suspicious that a deadly covid-variant became headline news suddenly after the vaccine rollout?

  4. A good summary of what the PCR process is and isn’t

    “Much has been written about the PCR test but the key factors are:

    a) it’s not a diagnostic test
    b) it’s never been calibrated to be testing solely for a Sars Cov 2 virus
    c) every country is using different assays using different gene targets
    d) in some countries a single gene target qualifies as a positive result, in some countries it’s 2 and some countries it’s 3
    e) PCR cannot distinguish between a fully intact virus and viral fragments that may or not be infectious.

    PCR is actually a brilliant research tool if it’s used correctly.

    In terms of the covid sham the issue is PCR is being misused.

    None of the genes being detected have been scientifically validated and the exceptionally poor primer design is producing wildly inaccurate results.

    The E gene is likely to detect all Asian viruses.

    The RDRP gene is so poorly designed on the primer that it cross reacts with other coronaviruses.

    When you run PCR at CT levels of over 35 the results are meaningless.

    It’s a farce.”
